Rapid vs West Ham United prediction. On Thursday, November 25, the matches of the 5th round of the group round of the Europa League will take place. We would like to draw your attention to our variant of the optimal choice of a bet on the game of representatives of Group H Rapid - West Ham.
In the history of head-to-head confrontations of these rivals, there is only 1 match - on September 30, West Ham, without much straining at home, won against Rapid with a score of 2: 0. Will the British succeed in winning in Austria as well?
Rapid is not doing very well this season, either domestically or in the Europa League. In the Austrian championship, only 19 points after 15 rounds and the current 6th place - and the team has at least 2 real contenders for the first six. In the Europa League, the team is in last place - after 4 rounds, only 3 points (but Rapid has a chance for Euro-spring).
West Ham has already secured a spot in the Europa League playoffs. Now the British have 10 points and, even after losing the last 2 matches, the team will not fall below the second place. This means there is no point in going to Austria with the main squad, which needs to move away from the 0: 1 defeat to Wolverhampton on November 20 and prepare for the match with Manchester City.
